Great news for parents! This upcoming #school year promises new #technology upgrades for our children to help individualize and improve their #education. With summer well underway, school districts and teachers are looking to allocate money in their budget for technology advancements that our children need in their classrooms.

Declining tax revenues and rising pension and health care costs are contributing to the #budget shortfalls. The impact will hit military bases, public school , #highereducation, #healthcare , social services and maintenance.

To help meet an October deadline, a number of private-sector tech firms have stepped in to collaborate with public officials. ‪#‎technology‬

Two days ago, the Internal Revenue Service said it believes the recent cyber-attack that allowed the stealing of tax returns of more than 100,000 people originated from Russia. The cybercriminals used personal data stolen from the agency to file $50 million in fraudulent ‪#‎taxreturns‬.

Experts estimate that ‪#‎cybercrime‬ could cost the world up to $575 billion per year. So what is the government doing to attack the problem?

Did you know that #SanAntonioZoo needs 2 million gallons of water a day for its animals, schools in the Tampa Bay Area of ‪#‎Florida‬ use 22,284 gallons of water each day, and the average American uses 176 gallons of water per day?! That’s a lot of water! So, what is happening to resolve the country’s ‪#‎water‬ needs?

Cooperative purchasing programs save time, money and effort because goods and services have already been vetted. That’s the reason public officials love them. They can make purchases quickly and without the hassle of launching a formal solicitation process.

Twenty years is a long time and $3 billion is a lot of money, but that’s what it will take to reconstruct a seven-mile section of ‪#‎I94‬ in ‪#‎Detroit‬. If it is going to take this long to repair the stretch why has it not started construction?

There are legit #privacy concerns about #bigdata, but don't doubt that government can use #DataAnalytics for good.

The Highway Trust Fund, was set to expire at the end of May, however motivated people throughout the country reached out to members of Congress to get it extended. Why is Congress stalling while the picture becomes bleaker each year?
